(SCENE) Metrospace opens new gallery under MSU Department of Art, Art History and Design
Last Friday at 6 p.m. (SCENE) Metrospace reopened.
The urban art gallery, located at 110 Charles St., closed over the summer for renovations after a new operating agreement regrading the space was signed between the city of East Lansing and MSU's Department of Art, Art History and Design. The agreement states that states that the AAHD will have independent control over the gallery for a five year trial period.
The gallery was open until 8 p.m. with a new exhibit called Place in Proximity. The exhibit called for for work made by artists living in the states of Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. This exhibition aims to juxtapose themes, qualities, and mannerisms of contemporary art from within our surrounding geographical region according to (SCENE) Metrospace's website.
The call was open to anyone 18 years or older and submissions could range from traditional to conceptual art. The only required criteria for entry was that works must be made by visual artists currently residing in the states of Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
During exhibitions (SCENE) Metrospace will operate with the following hours; Thursday 3-7 p.m., Friday 1-7 p.m., Saturday 12-5 p.m. and Sunday 12-5 p.m.
